Meticulously handmade by artisans in Cameroon, the Juju hat, Bamileke feather headdress, or Tyn hat is traditionally worn by royal dancers during important ceremonies held by tribal chiefs. These breathtaking works of art transform into stunning wall hangings that bring texture and personality to any space.
Theses traditional ceremonial headdresses use dyed or natural bird feathers to symbolize prosperity and rarity, and are believed to possess all of the positive qualities of birds. Juju hats are made by meticulously sewing feathers to a raffia base that is covered in fabric on the exterior. Juju hats are stored in a collapsed drum shape, and splay open like flowers to reveal their gorgeous full shape.
At Zeal Living, our Juju hats were individually hand selected in African markets. This way, we can personally ensure that every headdress we sell is gorgeous and of the highest quality.
